Activity - Find and Share from Florida Orange Grove
In this Discussion Forum, share one resource from the Florida Orange Grove Respository.  Please include a link to the material, explain why you selected it, and how you would include this resource in your blended class.   Please check to make sure your link is working by previewing your post.   I've posted one resource I found on Fair Use that I could use in another workshop.


Orange Grove Activity (Mathematics functions)
by YANILDA ESPINAL (yespinal) at 3/7/2009 4:09 PM

I use the word function and I found the National Library of Virtual Manipulative.  I like this site a lot  http://enlvm.usu.edu/ma/nav/toc.jsp?sid=__shared&cid=emready@functions&cf=activity to explore the notion of function in MAT1033 and MAC1105.  

MLA in Philosophy
by BARRON BROWN (bbrown1) at 3/7/2009 2:12 PM

Since most of my courses are Gordon Rule, the MLA Murder Mystery exercise seems like it would be helpful as a resource:


Orange Grove activity
by CAROLINA LORENZO (clorenzo) at 3/2/2009 1:20 PM
I searched fro my discipline, but could not find anything in the results. It actually came up 0, but then I began reading each possible link and found several that would work well. I chose the MLA activity link, because my students have a very hard time following MLA style, mostly because they refuse to buy the manual and so are unable to double check the requirements as need be. I thought that this little interactive quiz could help them prepare to write research papers for me.

Thanks for digging.  Florida Orange Grove also has a "federated search" link that will allow you to search multiple repositories.    
Resource from the Florida Orange Grove Respository
by FLYNN MARTINS (fmartins) at 2/28/2009 10:45 PM


The link above is for the Star Spangled Banner.  I had been meaning to prepare a lecture on the subject and this would be a suitable addition.  Unfortunately, what was probably the best part, the interactive flag and explanation, did not work on my computer despite numerous attempts.  I believe it is only my old computer that is the problem so I have posted it anyway.  Also, all other aspects functioned smoothly. 

The site was not ideal, partly because it seems targeted toward highschool teachers.  On the other hand, it included things like lesson plans and quizes along with the material.  The most important reason I selected this site however is because it it from the Smithsonian - very appropriate for an American History class.

As a side note, I can really appreciate the Orange Grove video segment about using standard labeling so that other people could easily locate information.  When looking through sites for this assignment, I became irritated by the poor organization of many of the sites.  Even on the above link, the relevant material is always on the extreme right (off the screen).

Excellent CTD class.  I am learning a lot.

The interactive flag is the coolest.. and it worked on my computer.  Try upgrading your version of Flash Player.    There should be a link on the page or go to  the Adobe web site.      Thanks for a great post.

What a wonderful resource!

At Orange Grove, easily found, is a series of videos illustrating basic mathematics concepts taught in MAC1105.

Philosophy: teaching logic
by ALLEN MCPHEE (amcphee) at 2/27/2009 9:35 AM

On Florida Orange Grove search, I found a link to small textbook that introduces formal logic. I use the same approach in my courses as the author of this text. This text can be used in philosophy courses introducing logic and it is copyright free, at least for teaching purposes. Take a look, great stuff. 

Re: Philosophy: teaching logic
by FLYNN MARTINS (fmartins) at 2/28/2009 10:55 PM

Analysis is a big part of History and Logic is a big part of analysis.

I like it.  It's straightforward and easy to E-mail to students in my History classes.


Sustainability lessons using online carbon footprint calculator
by SHEILA GABY (sgaby) at 2/26/2009 7:50 PM

Here is the link to The Nature Conservancy's online carbon footpring calculator. http://www.nature.org/initiatives/climatechange/calculator/

This resource is applicable in both my General Studies Biology class in discussing sustainability relative to the natural resources section of the class. 

At the beginning of the section, the students would be asked to complete the calculator, assess their homes and resourse use, and post intended changes that would decrease their carbon footprint. As a part of completing that section, the students would again complete the calculator, compare their results to their previous results, and write a reflection on the changes they intended to make, including discussions on the difficulty of implementing the changes, improvements to their changes, and recommendations to other students.

Orange Grove for nursing students
by BARBARA POPOLA (bpopola) at 2/25/2009 3:46 PM


This is a good resource for pediatric nursing students (sick children nursing).

Florida Orange Grove --Share
by PAULINE KERR (pkerr) at 2/25/2009 12:10 PM
http://fas.org/immuneattack/ . this is the link to my topic  Immune attack : An educational video game.  I have chosen this topic because often times the nursing students find the topic a bit difficult and they do not remember the roles of the white blood cells. I would use this interactive game and reading material whenever I am lecturing on the topic Immunology, and also in preparing the students for their careplann/ critical exams. A vey good self-directed tool.

I like the resource that I found at BCC. It is entitled Creating a Roadmap for E-Learning -  Instructional Events and Learning Objects. This resource appears in the document called Pedagogy: Instructional Events and Learning Objects for SoftChalk. I will definitely refer to this resource as I go about designing my blended course.

by BETH CLOUES (bcloues) at 2/24/2009 2:42 PM

I found several resources that would be good to use (see link http://florida.theorangegrove.org/og/access/search.do). The first three in the search (Citing Online Articles Using Landmark Citation Machine, Is It a Popular Magazine or a Scholarly Journal, and Analyzing the Reliability of a Website) would be useful in LIS 1001, which covers both print and online resources. Even though MDC does not use the Landmark Citation Machine, it makes the students think about the components that are needed in citing articles from databases.

I really didn't see anything actually related to teaching ESL speech and accent reduction for adult learners. But I did find a website that might help me with my blended course design from the Michigan State University website.


It provides technology-enhanced teaching and learning solutions.

Orange Grove
by BARRON BROWN (bbrown1) at 2/21/2009 1:33 PM

The learning nugget that I'm most likely to use from Orange Grove is MLA Murder Mystery (http://florida.theorangegrove.org/og/items/e6ee2ec0-c2c6-92ba-d319-99e62d908405/1/MLA.zip/MLA/index.html?backto=access%2Fsearch.do%3Fpaging.page%3D1%26qs.query%3DMLA%26basic.method%3Dsearch%26sort.selected%3DRANK&shownav=true), since I almost exclusively teach the philosophy course that is a Gorden Rule requiremnt.  However, I require MLA format in all my courses.  This would be helpful.

The disadvantage of using these types of resources is, so it seems, there is no way of correcting errors found in them.

I often find ,whether it is this topic or not, many sources by just using a search engine.

All that I can really use from Orange Grove is the MLA Murder Mystery. (I have already passed this link on to other instructors.) It is so cool. I am going to use it with my EAP writing classes. There is also something on Plagerism that gave me a few more links to add.

MLA Murder Mystery and Citation Machine
by JUDITH TARVER (jtarver) at 2/11/2009 12:36 PM
As noted several times, the MLA Murder Mystery and Citing Online Articles Using Landmark Citation Machine are two important resources, especially for my discipline. I have used the Citation Machine in my classes and find that this activity would be helpful for my 1102 students. 
However, the MLA updates should be published later this term, and these resources may need to be updated as well.
MLA Murder Mystery
by CARY SER (cser) at 2/10/2009 5:13 PM
I like the concept of turning becoming familiar with MLA format into a game, but found the instruction to be inadequate.  I will have to find another video or embed online exercises to familiarize the students with the concepts first, and then perhaps let them play the game (although murdering an English professor might put dangerous ideas into their heads).
Great Supplementary Material
by FRANCIA TORRES (ftorres1) at 2/9/2009 6:43 PM

A Beginner's Guide to Effective Email-


I found this wonderful website about the writing E-mail. I think this would be a great resource for my students to connect what they learn in my class to the real world. Most students come to class writing in "text" language, and direct themselves to me in that same language in their e-mails. This sources will assist in learning writing etiquette for the real world.

The Orange Grove appears to be a great location for supplementary Material for my students.

Analyzing the Reliability of a Website
by DEBORAH KEELER (dkeeler) at 2/7/2009 11:31 PM

I looked at all 72 learning objects in the Orange Grove and noted there were only a few related to Library Science. Santa Fe's checklist to evaluate an Internet website is good and I could add it to the lesson in LIS2004 (Introduction to Internet Research) on Evaluating the Web. The link to the resource is florida.theorangegrove.org/og/items/580d3889-0ac0-c970-b289-9f279154f2c7/1/Website_Reliability.pdf  Elements of the checklist I particularly like include: a) asking the student to consider who is a website author's intended audience and b) is bias or propaganda evident.

I couldn't find much in the areas of research, punctuation, grammar or MLA style at the Orange Grove website.  The above was found under the "research" key word.  It is a tool for evaluating websites.  This would be useful in my ENC 1102 course.

Orange juice w/ breakfast
by ANDREW FRADOS (afrados) at 2/3/2009 12:50 PM

What a nice treat! I put in nursing to see what I would get and behold, there were many files, games, exercises. I sure can use some of these to put in my blended course. What I ended up with was a jeopardy game about heart assessment. Students can play the game and learn while they are enjoying themselves- what a concept!


Orange Juice and Coffee good for breakfast not for teaching
by GREGORY BALLINGER (gballing) at 2/2/2009 11:46 PM

I teach the Java programming language.

After seeing the very impressive movie introducing OrangeGrove, I was very disappointed by its coverage of my field. The only resource that looked interesting at the college level (CS1 Lectures) had a broken link. The K-12 area had one or two references to material I already knew.

All was not lost however, I suggest you check out the Federated Search feature on the left. It searches through multiple learning repositories.

It was through that that I discovered a much more compresive repository - Intute. On OrangeGrove I got this message "Warning: Failed to retrieve results from ' Intute ' ". But since I hadn't heard of Intute, I thought I'd check it out and it had 5 pages of suggested links about Java Programming including a couple that I did not already know.

After spending about 2 hours of searching OrangeGrove and related depositories, I really couldn't find anything to use in my classes. The items I did find were text based and I think my existing online powerpoints and self-produced videos are better than anything I found through these sites.

What a wonderful resource!  I found a lesson to teach Comparison/Contrast thinking and organization (see link below)...it has a little movie to show process of writing a paper using that rhetorical device..very simple, straightforward with a few graphics that do not distract...could be used with level 4 EAP/ESL courses!

I would put it up as an introduction to the process or use as a review..then we would have a F2F to clarify concepts and maybe do a practice to apply the steps...



MLA Murder Mystery
by VICTOR CALDERIN (vcalderi) at 2/2/2009 1:02 PM

  As others have noticed on the post, the MLA Murder Mystery is an effective and comprehensive mode to deliver content on the MLA format.  The use of the animation and narrative really create a sound context for the lesson, particularly the talking skeleton.  Also, the lesson took care of dealing with the depth and handling nuances of the MLA format.  My only concern with the site was the navigation of it.  I did not like the fact that I could not jump around the site, but I can forgive it as I am sure that the author intended this linear approach.  All in all, an entertaining and useful page for understanding MLA.



by MIRIAM DEL CAMPO (mdelcamp) at 2/2/2009 11:56 AM

From the Orange Grove Resources, I like ARKive. This is agreat tool to teach conservation, biodiversity, ecology, etc.

 ARKive is a digital library of films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s species. ARKive provides virtual conservation by finding, sorting, cataloguing and copying the key audio-visual records of the world’s animals, plants and fungi. Using these multimedia profiles, ARKive is creating a unique record of the world’s biodiversity.

The link to ARKive is  http://www.arkive.org/

Identifying f(x) on a Graph
by ELIANE KEANE (ekeane) at 2/1/2009 8:34 PM
Found a possible good lesson on identifying the functional notation on a graph- a concept poorly understood by College Algebra students. The graphs and animation make it easier to visualize the functional notation concept. Check  http://florida.theorangegrove.org/og/items/46215966-e46e-5080-567b-3599afb74c5e/1/

Florida Orange Grove Find and Share Activity
by ILIANA HAKES-MARTINEZ (ihakesma) at 1/30/2009 1:39 PM

Many unprecedented events are taking place in our world.  As I listen to my students' conversations pertaining to current world affairs, it appears as though they are feeling that CHANGE is inevitable; they appear to want to know more about their rights and to want to know more about how they can make sure their voice is heard during this apparent paradigm shift the world is experiencing.   

I found the following activity that may be applicable to Learning Outcome (TLO)#6:  Personal, Civic and Social Responsibility.  It is called the Bill of Rights Institute and you can access it by clicking here

In order to acquire personal, civic and social responsibility, one must know the laws of one's country, state, city, and so forth.  In my opinion, this site is a start in the direction for acquiring such knowledge, and it appears "College Prep Friendly." 

I would incorporate this site as a resource for research on a TLO focused assignment and assess the students by using the following:  

1.  Online Forum Discussions

2.  F2F In-Class Group and Writing Activities

MLA Murder Mystery and Citation Machine
by MARIA CASADO (mcasado) at 1/30/2009 11:50 AM
I like the MLA Murder Mystery because it's fun and interesting.  Also, in the library instructions, I've been using the Citation Machine.  But I always tell students they need to reformat the citations.  Many databases (Academic Search Complete, Opposing View Points, Biography Resource Center...) have already the citation for the articles, but students need to reformat them.  Below I've copied and pasted citation formats from Academic Search Complete
NOTE: Review the instructions at EBSCO Support Site and make any necessary corrections before using. Pay special attention to personal names, capitalization, and dates. Always consult your library resources for the exact formatting and punctuation guidelines.

In essence, I could use hundreds of resources from Florida Orange Grove . . . for instance . . . this link to the resource depicts the process of wave formation (including questions for the students) . . . I could use this as part of an introductory F2F session on ocean waves (for oceanography) . . . (it could be part of the online portion too, for practice) . . . I selected it because it actually uses illustrations from the textbook I am using . . . and somehow,  someone, created this great activity from simple textbook illustrations

Again, there are hundreds of sites in the Florida Orange Grove I can use for my courses . . . Thank you, Rene

MLA Murder Mystery
by HELEN ROLAND (hroland) at 1/28/2009 3:07 PM

This site from Daytona Beach Community College would be great for advanced writing classes.  This particular lesson deals with quotation marks.  Teaching MLA or any citation style is dry to say the least, but this recorded PPT lesson is entertaining and informative.  It could be used for review and further study after a f2f session on the topic, or it could be a stand alone guide.

Popular vs Professional materials
by GAIL HAWKS (ghawks) at 1/28/2009 1:44 PM
There really wasn't much material relevant to economics in the Orange Grove, but I did find an article I could incorporate with my Gordon Rule requirement.  The article turned out to be a simple one page description my students could use to determine if there source of information for the research paper was a popular or professional reference.  This would help with Learning Outcome #4 Information Literacy. edited by ghawks on 1/28/2009 1:52 PM

Gail, This is a great resource! I'm going to use this information to help my students in Abnormal Psychology, CLP 2140.  They write 2,000 word research papers, and this information should allay some of their fears about determining credible and professional resources.  Sheryl

Copyright Infringement
by JOSE DONIS (jdonis) at 1/27/2009 2:28 PM

I found this excellent online activity to incorporate into my blended course.  In discussing music, there is much music out there to listen to, but what about other matters tangential to music?  Since we live in a technological age, the ethical matter about copyright infringement usually comes up in any discussion about music.  This site gives students activities regarding these issues and then allows for debate during the F2F session.

I believe I can incorporate Learning Outcomes 9 (aesthetic appreciation) and 7 (ethical thinking and application) in just one activity.  This would make the college and SACS just delighted with joy!  LOL

Jose, Wow! This is some thorough resource.  I teach the grad course EDG 5325, Analysis of Teaching, and I'm going to share this with some of my music instructors.  What a great supportive and comprehensive activity.  Sheryl

I found a great worksheet from the University of Minnesota that I could include in a blended workshop on Copyright and Fair Use  Since copyright and fair use is far from an exact science, I think the use of worksheet like this would really help instructors decide if the intended use is really Fair Use or not.    Florida Orange Grove Link.
